When summer arrives we all love to have perfect feet without cracks, calluses, and as beautiful as possible to wear those attractive sandals we just bought.

However, we must take into account that just as we submit our skin and hair to strict daily care and beauty rituals, it’s also a good idea to do the same with our feet.

It doesn’t cost you anything, for example, to prepare a relaxing foot bath once a week. Then, you can gently exfoliate your feet or reactivate their circulation with appropriate periodic massages, which are so good to prevent swelling or to find relief after a long day’s work.

Feet are more than just that part of our body to show off in summer. They’re our support and that part of our body that both need inappropriate footwear and rest after a long day of activity.

In this article, we’ll tell you how you can get as perfect of feet as possible in just 15 minutes. However, you must take care of them and pamper them every day. After all, they’re your support and your point of connection with the Earth.

How to get perfect feet in 15 minutes

Let’s say you’ve just gotten home and you have to get ready for an event, an appointment, or a simple walk where you decide to put on your sandals and show off your perfect feet.

What should you keep in mind to achieve this quickly and effectively? Next, we invite you to take note of these simple “express” tips.

1. Remove calluses and bad odors in 6 minutes for perfect feet

What do I need?

  • 30 g sea salt
  • 30 g olive oil
  • Half an avocado
  • 5 ml peppermint essential oil

How do I prepare it?

It’s very simple.

  • Start by taking a bowl and mashing the half avocado to make it into a very fine paste.
  • Then, mix in it the other ingredients: sea salt, olive oil, and peppermint essential oil. Try to get a very fine cream but with the right texture so that you can massage your feet with it.
  • The second step is to put this homemade cream in the palm of your hand and start massaging the whole length of the foot, including the heels, the sole and the toes. Make sure it’s an energetic massage to reactivate your circulation. Meanwhile, at the same time, massaging well can help this treatment to act as an exfoliant thanks to the sea salt.
  • Finally, clean your feet with warm water, removing all the avocado cream to be removed.
  • Finally, finish with a good cold shower. It’s very relaxing!

2. Cut your toenails properly

Taking care of your toenails is very important. Wearing your nails too long, for example, can cause wounds to form, as well as ingrown toenails due to the nails rubbing against your shoes.

So, keep in mind that the nails are not only that part of the feet to show off through attractive polishes that match your sandals. In fact, if not taken care of them, we can catch serious infections and even fungus! 

Take note of how you should cut your nails. This doesn’t need to take more than 4 or 5 minutes.

  • Cut the nails with suitable scissors or nail clippers specifically for toenails (they shouldn’t be the same as the ones we use for our hands).
  • Disinfect the clippers with alcohol and place your feet on a towel in a comfortable place.
  • Start cutting the nail of the big toe and do it in a square shape – never curved. That way, you prevent ingrown nails.
  • Never cut your nails too short. Remember that nails have the function of protecting our fingers, toes, and our skin, so if you do it in a very thin way, you risk suffering infections.
  • File your nails if you need to.
  • Then, finally, moisten a cotton disc with a few drops of lavender essential oil, which will strengthen your nails, protect them from bacteria, and promote oxygenation.

3. Get delicate, soft and shiny feet with rosehip oil

Rosehip essential oil should never be missing at home. It’s very suitable for treating damaged skin and to reduce and treat scars on the skin, as well as cracks, burns, dry or very sunburned skin.

In fact, research suggests the benefits of this oil during pregnancy. However, we’d like to highlight the evidence that it’s being used by dermatologists and beauty professionals with the purpose of moisturizing and regenerating damaged skin.

That said, just think a little about what could help you get perfect feet!

Now, you can find rosehip essential oil in specialized beauty shops or herbalists. Its cost is sometimes a little high. However, the investment is worth it, because it’s the richest oil in vitamins, minerals, and trace elements essential to “restore” and give us back the natural beauty of our skin.

  • To finish with these “express” tips, just apply about three drops of this oil to your hands.
  • Then, start a small massage in the area of your heels and toes, which are undoubtedly the most damaged areas.
  • In a few seconds, thanks to its composition, rosehip oil will help your feet look much more beautiful, delicate, and cared for. The effect and protection will last for several hours.
